ABOUT THE BOOK
Ariel Baxter has just moved into the neighborhood of her dreams. The chaos of domestic life and the loneliness of motherhood, however, moved with her. Then she meets her neighbor, Justine Miller. Justine ushers Ariel into a world of clutter-free houses, fresh-baked bread, homemade crafts, neighborhood play dates, and organization techniques designed to make marriage better and parenting manageable.
Soon Ariel realizes there is hope for peace, friendship, and clean kitchen counters. But when rumors start to circulate about Justine’s real home life, Ariel must choose whether to believe the best about the friend she admires or consider the possibility that “perfection” isn’t always what it seems to be.
Sally Says: She Makes It Look Easy is women’s fiction at its best. If this is characteristic of Whalen’s writing, then sign me up! I’m a fan.
What woman hasn’t looked at another who seemed to have everything together and wondered how she did it, who tried to copy her? This book addresses that, giving us a peek into that perfect world and reminding us that things aren’t always what they appear.
She Makes It Look Easy is a fast-paced enjoyable read, perfect for summer. I’m going back to get Whalen’s first book and eagerly watching for her next one.
